Notice of AGM and Publication of Annual Report and Accounts

Volex plc (AIM:VLX), the leading integrated manufacturing specialist for performance-critical applications and supplier of power products, is pleased to announce the publication of its Notice of Annual General Meeting ('AGM') for 2021 and its Annual Report and Accounts for the 2021 financial year.  Both documents are now available on the Company's website at www.volex.com on the Shareholder Information page in the Investor Relations section and will be posted today to shareholders who have elected to receive them in hard copy.

The Company's AGM will take place at 2.00 p.m. on Thursday 29 July 2021, at its registered office at Unit C1, Bond Close, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG24 8PZ.  However, as detailed in the Notice of AGM, while it is possible that the majority of the UK Government COVID-19 restrictions will have been lifted by the date of the AGM, the COVID-19 pandemic remains an evolving situation and we cannot guarantee at this time that physical attendance will be permitted by law and UK Government guidance. The board of directors of the Company (the 'Board') continues to closely monitor developments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and the health and safety of our employees, shareholders and the Board remain paramount.

Due to the potential capacity restraints at the AGM if social distancing measures remain in place, and to ensure we have all the necessary details for Track and Trace, if shareholders are legally permitted and intend to attend the AGM in person, we respectfully ask that they pre-register by emailing AGM@volex.com.  If social distancing measures remain in place, attendance at the AGM is likely to be on a first come, first served basis (based on the order in which shareholders pre-register).  Pre-registration for the AGM will close when the capacity limit has been reached or, if earlier, at 6.00 p.m. on 27 July 2021.

In light of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic and our continued focus on engagement with shareholders, we are inviting and encouraging all our shareholders to watch and listen to the AGM online via a live webcast, using the Investor Meet Company platform, as an alternative to attending in person.  Written questions can be submitted via the Investor Meet Company Platform in advance of the AGM until 2.00 p.m. on 28 July 2021 (being 24 hours prior to the AGM), or can be submitted via the Investor Meet Company Platform at any time during the AGM itself.  Questions may also be submitted by email or post in advance of the proxy deadline, as further detailed in the Notice of AGM.  Please note that shareholders joining the live webcast will not be able to vote on the day and must register their vote in advance, which they should do by appointing the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy. To attend the webcast shareholders should register at https://www.investormeetcompany.com/volex-plc/register-investor by 6.00 p.m. on 27 July 2021.

In any event, in view of the continuing risk posed by COVID-19 and for the health and safety of our shareholders, employees and the Board, we respectfully ask shareholders not to make plans to attend the AGM in person and to instead participate in the webcast, appoint the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy and/or to submit questions for the Board, as further detailed in the Notice of AGM.

The Board would like to thank shareholders for their support and understanding in the current circumstances.
